    Whoops, bit too quick

    Hello

    Well. Finally got both drive shafts on and ran the car. The clunking noise is still there. So that rules the drive shafts out.

    Ummm. My next line of attack is to...

    Hi

    I have had a break from the Fulvia for a while (house DIY!) and am now just about to put the drive shafts back to see if this solves the clunking noise. I am not sure I fully understand the...

    AH, there used to be/should be some rubber there originally then?

    Thanks for the advice.

    Hi

    Ah, drive shaft and wishbone removal. Ummm. Was hoping not to have to do that.

    Today Pat (Fen Fulvia) and I removed the drive shafts from my spares subframe. The famed tightness of the lock nuts and hub nuts wasn't apparent in this case. They came off with scary ease.
